Crazy quilting was a very popular type of quilting in the late 1800s during the Victorian era. Ladies enjoyed piecing together different sized scraps of fancy fabrics to form blocks, and then embroidered and embellished the quilt blocks. They called this crazy quilting. Sometimes they used appliques, beads, embroidered designs, or ribbons—the more elaborate the better. The quilts usually were used as display quilts to show one’s skill in embroidery, and generally not made for heavy use. Nowadays, crazy quilts can be made with almost any fabric, and embroidered as much or as little as you like. The choice is up to you.

I love Keepers of the Faith because it is for boys and girls so my kids can work on things together as well as what interests them. I love that it is all biblically based, encompasses all ages, and fits in easily with our homeschool schedule. We have met dear friends through meetings at our home, memories that will last a lifetime. I know when I order a KOF book it has already been made sure it is a wholesome read. I wish I had KOF when I was a girl, I know my life would have been different if I had.
